This year just got blown wide open. On the one side, blaster flashes and lightsaber swishes herald the arrival of Star Wars: Battlefront. On the other, tracer fire and technological angst rather more moodily announce the inevitable Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Frankly, fitting our impressions of both of them takes up a fair chunk of the new issue of Official Xbox Magazine by itself.
These are truly next-gen shooters, games brimming with new ideas – trust us, we’ve seen them both first hand, and we’ll be telling you just what we think of them in exacting detail. Suffice to say, we’re pretty excited about X-Wings.
And if the sheer glut of delicious information isn’t enough for you, this month’s free gift is an Xbox Trivia book, with 200 questions to tax your mind to breaking point.
You can buy the magazine in any shop worth its salt, buy the digital edition (with added audio commentary from editor Matthew Castle and myself) by downloading the OXM app, or subscribe to either format here. Enjoy!
